Actions and design situations Design situations

Design situations have a key role to play in the selection of actions to include in design calculations and in the choice of partial factors to apply to both actions and material properties. Design situations are:

sets of physical conditions representing the real conditions occurring during a certain time interval for which the design will demonstrate that relevant limit states are not exceeded.

The table below summarizes the design situations defined in EN 1990.
